Five Outdoor Themes: Create a Super-Stylish Themed Outdoor Look
At the tim writing, the UK is in throes of a mini-heatwave (long may it last!) and so the sunny weather made us very glad that we found some lockdown time to make an effort with the garden a few months ago. Small actions such as putting up a hammock and moving a few things around make the garden a real haven, almost like dividing it into ‘rooms’ for different times of the day.
